Nino Moschella: Boom Shadow
Buy! - (Ubiquity)
The 2nd album from this Bay Area singer/multi-instrumentalist is a masterful set of psychedelic soul-funk, building upon the promise of his 2006 debut The Fix with fuller, more imaginative arrangements driven by adventurous rhythms that still bring the funk. With a warm, trippy sound that’s heavy on the low-end, the album is steeped in the music of ‘70s forebears like Sly Stone, Shuggie Otis and Stevie Wonder (along with classic Prince), but with enough edgy, forward-looking touches to make it more than just a throwback. 5/19/2009 - Don Yates
